Herbal Medicine Maker Boot Camp
This seminar is a two-day intensive hands-on identification and preparation workshop.
Day 1: Nature’s Medicine Supply—Up Close and Personal
“Herb Walk” doesn’t begin to cover it. A full day-long walking-driving guided tour of woodland, meadow and garden herbs in all their seasonal splendor will build the confidence to accurately identify many of Nature’s medicinal wonders. Dozens of common and exotic medicine plants will be pointed out, with notes and tips about usage, harvesting, preparation and storage. Van transport from the hotel is provided.
Day 2: Herbal Preparations
An extended day of hands-on bark peeling, root washing, herb chopping good times. The group will break up to work stations to learn, practice and share the art and techniques of Medicine Making with herbs. Live demonstrations, complete instructions, and a few “tricks-of-the-trade” from a practicing “old school” herbalist will allow students to immerse themselves in the herbalist’s art. Selections of fresh and dried bulk herbs will be provided, along with the ingredients, tools, bottles and containers necessary to produce finished herbal products that participants can take home.
